Honoring our traditions. Building our future.

Support the Sure Foundations Campaign

University Liggett School is one of the country’s top educational institutions.
This is a place where students learn through experience. Where they discover their passions.  Students here uncover questions and are challenged to seek the answers.
University Liggett School is a place where students turn information into understanding.
The Sure Foundations campaign will shape these experiences for this generation of students and the generations that follow.
